Abstraction frees me from content and enables me to focus on lines, movement. The key is to find with each stroke a soft undulation and a vibrant rhythm, to construct a harmonious picture with a sensual gesture. As the paintbrush soothingly caresses the grain of the paper, the painter's hand is calmed by these tactile vibrations.

My paintings are abstract, one could say. But more specifically, they are snapshots of my brain. As my paintbrush soothingly glides onto the velum paper, the shapes and colors that emerge translate a state of mind, a feeling or a mood. To me painting is a both a diary and a therapy, a writing full of meaning, emotion and intent.
